"Don’t wait for permission to make something that’s interesting or amusing to you. Just do it now. Don’t wait. Find a story idea, start making it, give yourself a deadline, show it to people who’ll give you notes to make it better. Don’t wait till you’re older, or in some better job than you have now. Don’t wait for anything. Don’t wait till some magical story idea drops into your lap. That’s not where ideas come from. Go looking for an idea and it’ll show up. Begin now. Be a fucking soldier about it and be tough."

Quick tip for things to do immediately post-interview:

When I come out of an interview, I jot down the things I remember as being my favorite moments. For an hour-long interview usually it’s just four or five moments, but if out I’m reporting all day, I’ll spend over an hour at night typing out every favorite thing that happened. This is handier than you might think. Often this short list of favorite things will provide the backbone to the structure to my story.

Read through for the gear This American Life uses and its editing process.

This is really good advice, and worth keeping!

I keep hearing this and it’s always true: what am I waiting for?

The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.

Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.Fuck your pretentious shit.


"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"

I’m old, I remember life before smartphones, and guess what, nobody randomly chatted it up with strangers back then, either.
(It was because of those damn Walkmans and Gameboys, harrumph harrumph [rattles newspaper])

I get that smartphones do more, so we look at them more often, but mobile phones have been an everyday, mass-market convenience for over a decade now (in Japan, almost two). Can we stop pretending that the iPhone broke society?

Your Tomodachi will be in Smash Bros. ⊟

Along with a 3DS-exclusive Tomodachi Life stage, the new Smash Bros. will feature Miis pulled from your system, wandering the level’s apartments.

More info on the stage:

"The front walls of the apartments disappear so you can see the area within when a fighter overlaps with the room. The rooms are randomly placed and selected from among several types. Planting an X Bomb behind a wall might be an effective tactic."

We’ll be posting a bunch of new Smash Bros. screens shortly too. Prepare yourself for Captain Falcon buttocks. Be ready for his jelly.

Metal Slug 3 (2000)
Developer(s): SNK
Frame sheet can be found here.
Sprite map can be found here.

Note:

It’s a static boss with a single move (granted there’s a small and large variant of the attack), but I wanted to show it off since it’s one of the best effects I’ve seen among any pixelated game. On top of including the final sprite, I’ve separated both layers of the effect because that’s really what’s being studied here.

Metal Slug is a miracle.
